In 2021, Marvel released a first-look video of Across the Spider-Verse, which had hints of Spider-Man India like the Devanagari typography, sounds from the tabla and Indian architectural motifs like minarets and finials. I read the Spider-Man India comics in 2008. It’s a short series of four comics. What was fascinating was that all the names were similar to the American names. So Peter Parker is Pavitr Prabhakar; Mary Jane is Meera Jain; Aunt May is Aunt Maya and Uncle Ben is Uncle Bhim. And did you know that Karan Soni, who will voice Spider-Man in the English version, acted as Dopinder in Deadpool?

But did you know that he has the most diverse and interesting rogues’ gallery in the Marvel universe with over 200 rogues?
My pick: Marvel’s Spider-Man (2018) and Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales are two interactive games that offer a true Spider-Man experience.
